Dodgers Look to Right the Ship on 6 Game Homestand to Close April

Editor’s note: this is a sponsored post from partner TiqIQ. Plenty of tickets still available, so let’s welcome the club back home in style.

When the Los Angeles Dodgers carried over an active trade deadline last season into an eventful offseason that would lead to the highest payroll in baseball, nobody expected them to be languishing in 4th place in the NL West as baseball’s opening month nears its end.

With major injuries to prized acquisitions Zack Greinke and Hanley Ramirez, the Dodgers have gotten out to a slow start that has them below .500 with a week left to play in April. Thankfully for the boys in blue, this weekend kicks off a six game homestand to close the month and open May as the Dodgers look to right the ship within the friendly confines of Chavez Ravine.

Los Angeles will open the homestand tonight against the Milwaukee Brewers. Tonight’s opening game is currently the least expensive of the series by average price, checking in at $33 dollars. It also has the least expensive get-in tickets of the series, with some available for as little as $3 dollars.

While Saturday evening’s game is the most expensive of the homestand at an average price of $54 dollars, it is still significantly less expensive than the Dodgers home season average ticket. According to TiqIQ, the average Dodgers tickets this season currently costs $71 dollars. As such, even the most expensive game of the homestand still represents a 24% discount to the average Dodger ticket this season.

Saturday, April 27th: $54/24

Sunday, April 28th: $36/4

Next week, the Dodgers open another three game set, this one against the division leading Colorado Rockies. With Hanley Ramirez slated to begin a rehab assignment next week, it is possible that he could join the team as they hit the road following Wednesday’s game, as the team heads upstate to San Francisco. Barring setback, he will almost certainly be in the lineup when the Dodgers return home to take on the Arizona Diamondbacks on May 6th, which could cause a fairly substantial bump in Dodgers ticket prices back towards the season average.

As such, the Rockies series represents a great opportunity to catch some Dodgers baseball inexpensively. Monday’s series opener is one of the least expensive games of the season, checking in at an average price of $26 dollars, with tickets available for as little as $2 dollars. While Tuesday’s game is the most expensive of the series at an average price of $48 dollars, this is still a 32% discount to the season average. As the homestand comes to an end on Wednesday, average ticket prices dip back down to $30 dollars, once again with tickets available as inexpensively as $2.
